Sellers

Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.

Learn Your Home’s Value before you List

Setting the right price before you list is critical to getting the most for your home and selling it quickly.  Having a professional with experience in your neighborhood prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) gives you the facts and insights to set the right price. At our Seller’s Consultation, I will provide you with a CMA and give you a suggested listing price for your home.

The wrong time to sell

This likely won’t come as a big surprise: you should avoid selling your home during the winter holiday season. Tensions run high during the holidays and budgets run low. The result? No one’s really itching to buy, and offers that do come in are often low. So as a general rule of thumb, avoid the months of December and January when selling a home.

The best season for selling

Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have past, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out with effective marketing and staging.

The best day for selling

According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.

Testimonials

Not knowing much about Middle Tennessee area I was happy when my family first met Dionne. She was very helpful letting us know which area was best for us to live. She did a great job working with us and we are very happy with our home. – Ricky N.

Dionne was great at finding the home of my dreams. I’m a first time home buyer so I was very nervous about the process but Dionne explained everything very thoroughly. After not getting my offer accepted the first few times around I became very discouraged but Dionne kept me motivated. Dionne was great during the negotiation process and made sure that she advocated for me fully. I highly recommend Dionne, I have already told many of my friends who are thinking of buying a home to contact her! -Brittany J
